You can’t “punch list” your business like you can a project.

 

Build Talent: Sustainable Growth Through Balanced Execution.

Building a business is a process where you have to develop balanced capabilities in all areas.  If you try to address too many things without attacking your biggest bottleneck you won’t get the throughput you need to make the whole business perform.  

The more complex your business becomes the harder it is for everyone on the team to clearly see the bottlenecks then align as many resources as practical around eliminating them.  There is no magic bullet for this but having structured models, assessment tools and facilitation methods to align teams around a common roadmap is a start.

We begin by looking at a contracting business in 6 major components then continuing to break it down from there until we identify the areas that will have the biggest impact. 

Hope this diagram helps you visualize your business in a different way.

Setting the Conditions for Success
The contractors that will continue to grow profitably in the future are those that master talent development. Leaders must (1) setup the conditions for success with their team and (2) lead by example when it comes to their own development.
Balancing Short-Term Crisis Management with the Mid and Longer-Term
A recession post-COVID is a likely enough scenario that it must be planned for. Recessions reorder the market and competitive landscape; ensure you earn the place you want.
End of Easy
Don’t give up just when the going gets tough, that should be your starting point. Know that most others have given up at this same point, so success and competitive advantage is probably just around the corner from when things begin to get tough.
